    Pros

    I worked in Women's Shoes. I had a salary base plus I was able to make commission, whereas some retail places it's one or the other.

    Cons

    I had worked every weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people. Now matter how big or small the store may be at least know the names and faces of the people who you employ.

    Pros

    Employee's get first dibs on Sale and Clearance merchandise and the employee discount on top of sale and clearance prices is amazing! The extra discount days where your employee discount can be as much as 50% is fantastic. Part Time employees usually (not always) have the flexibility to choose their own hours.

    Cons

    Everyone I have ever spoke to about working at Dillard's has the same complaint. Their sales quotas are ridiculously high and unattainable. If you don't make your sales quotas you can count on being terminated in about 9 months after you start working there, if your lucky a year.

    Advice to Management

    Rework your quotas and you could have a base of long term employees.

    Pros

    Discount- a very generous discount for employees
    Flexible- very flexible with schedules, well for me at least.
    If you want to advance a career with the company all you have to do is make it known and work hard to get what you want and you'll get there.

    Cons

    Sometimes over worked and upper management could communicate a little better but that's life right? Overall the company isn't bad but I would bring some of their ideals out of the dark ages.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be that we are no longer living in the past. This is the 21st century lets get some stores updated and the overall feel for the company updated.

    Pros

    Easy job to learn.
    Can be fun.
    Incentives.
    Chance for raise every 3 months.
    Discount.
    Great starting pay.

    Cons

    Stress on sales.
    No security.
    Competitive.
    Little customer traffic depending on location.
    Management does not do their part.

    Advice to Management

    Actually step up for your mistakes and flaws. We were suppose to be reviewed and you never did them so we got fired to cover your jobs. Do not hate the one manager who did work hard just because he does what is right. Do not pass hard working employees for a management position when you can get favors for someone who never had retail experience and give them the job. Stop lying and being lazy hypocrites. ***Not every store is like this***

    Pros

    Fun! This was a fun job with a bunch of girls playing in makeup all day, making women look and feel beautiful.

    Cons

    There were several management issues at the location I was at. No one was sure of anything, so if you had a question, it most likely wouldn't get answered. If you did get an answer, it was probably the wrong answer, so things changed often. Schedules, raises, what counter people were going to, promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better so everyone is on the same page
